Former UFC title contender Chael Sonnen is being completely honest regarding his recent drug testing done by USADA.

With his two-year suspension complete after testing positive for multiple banned substances in 2014, “The American Gangster” says that he is still unsure if his recent test results will come out clean.

“If I pass this first test we could be having a totally different talk, but I’m just being candid with you,” Sonnen said on Monday’s episode of “The MMA Hour.” I really don’t know what’s going to happen or what’s left.”

When Ariel Helwani asked Sonnen when he will receive the test results, Sonnen pointed out something very interesting.

“That’s the thing. You only get called if you fail the test,” Sonnen claimed. “If you called these guys up like I want to do and say ‘Hey are those results back?’ They start going, ‘Why? Why would you not know that you are going to pass?’

“Guys! It’s because I took everything in the world that you can’t take! Will you just tell me if I passed or not and every time I ask someone like that they act like it’s the most corrupt question in the world.”

Sonnen says that all he needs is one test to go forward with his decision to fight once again.

“I just need to, one test. If I pass one, I’m smooth sailing. But yes, this happened and I need to know and it doesn’t matter how many times I ask Ariel. It’s like they think I’m kidding or something. But no, this is what truth is. You guys just have never heard it before.”
